The people from left to right are: Anthony Stacchi (co-director, The Boxtrolls), Sandra Equihua (character designer, The Book of Life), Jorge Gutierrez (director, The Book Of Life), Phil Lord, and Chris Miller (co-director, The Lego Movie).

These directors see a lot of each other on the award circuit and it’s fun to see them having a good time. They’re all winners in our book.

    We should change the language.

    I know this post has a positive intention, and that’s great. I don’t mean to besmirch the good nature, however phrasing it as “his/her film” diminishes the hundreds who crafted this successful piece, even when this is not the intention.

    But yes, it’s great to see everyone enjoying each others’ company. <3

      Directors have always been possessive of THEIR films, animated or not.

      No need to change the status quo.

        I believe that when accepting an award for a film in the film’s category, you are *representing the team*. Just my 2c, my approach.
